Curiosity - The Search for New Worlds Through the Eyes of the Rover

Digital Art Contest

**THE WINNERS HAVE BEEN ANNOUNCED**

Digital artists of all ages and experience levels were invited to join us for an out of this world digital art contest. We've always been inspired by exploration, new discoveries and creative adventure! Artists came with us on an artistic journey to share what their curious rover discovered on their new world. 4 talented artists won great prizes from Smith Micro, Digital-Tutors and Filter Forge!




Artists were asked to show us what their new world would look like from the perspective of a space rover that just landed on a far away planet. What would the rover see, from the rover's point-of-view? What would be visible in the foreground, mid-ground and background? Are there any signs of life? If so, what kind of alien life is visible from the rover's perspective? What kind of weather is on this planet? Are there buildings of any kind? Are there any clues visible as to the atmosphere of this planet? Does the rover see any signs of "intelligent" life?


These are the top 4 that won in our Curious Contest. Congratulations to the winners! We would like to send out a great big THANK YOU to everyone that entered and expressed their creative visions!! We enjoyed seeing everyone's wonderful images. With so many great entries, we wish we had more prizes to award. We hope that you will continue to with your artistic adventures with us!
